"I went in for a hydro facial which was the first for me. I scheduled my appointment with Rita. The facility was very inviting and the room was very tranquil. When I laid down on the bed, I noticed it was nice and warm and extremely comfortable. Rita was very accommodating and explained everything that was going on during the facial. This facial was so relaxing and made me feel and look like I was glowing. Can't wait to try this again very soon. Rita even followed up with me the next day to see how my skin was feeling! Great service and even greater customer service!!!"- V.L. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2019
"Amazing facility! The equipment is all up to date and very clean. I had laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and hydration facial (done by Rita) all with noticeable changes before I walked out of the door. Can't recommend this place enough."- A.D. / Google / Jun 07, 2019
"I've been here a handful of times now, and always come out feeling better than when I came in. Dr. Thaker is kind and straightforward, and will work with you to make sure you get the treatment that works for you & your body. If something is not right for you, he won't do it, and I appreciate that honesty; especially in an industry where you may be able to find a doctor who will give you what you want, as long as you're willing to shell out - even if your body won't respond well to it or if could be hazardous to your health. I've come in and had microdermabrasion and hydrofacials done by Rita C., who is a wonderful medical esthetician with a great bedside manner. She always puts me at ease, and the treatments are relaxing and relatively painless - everyone's pain levels are different! But Rita has a gentle touch & I can practically nap while I'm getting it done. The hydrofacials have done wonders for my complexion, and have minimized the areas where I have hyperpigmentation and adult acne. The spa itself is sparkling clean, with all the latest equipment. Their prices are reasonable and they're quick to respond if you have any questions leading up to your appointment. Definitely give them a try if you're looking to treat yourself."- T.N. / Google / Apr 16, 2019
Women and men who want to improve the tone and texture of their complexion, stimulate hair growth, or expedite the healing of a cosmetic procedure in a natural manner are typically great candidates for PRP therapy. Since it naturally promotes collagen production, it is also a fantastic treatment option for rejuvenating dull-colored skin. Speak with Dr. Thaker if you have certain any blood disorders, skin conditions, or anemia to determine whether it is safe for you to receive PRP therapy.
Once you are seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, a bit of blood will be taken from your arm and placed in a centrifuge machine. Usually, we take about four tablespoons worth of blood. After about 15 minutes, the different components of the blood will be separated and ready for injection. We will place the condensed plasma into a sterile syringe and inject it into the treatment areas. The procedure usually only takes around five minutes but can vary patient to patient.
What to Expect
Platelet-rich plasma promotes the production of elastin and collagen naturally to create younger and tighter-looking skin and stimulate the hair follicles when used on the scalp. Because it utilizes your own blood, the risk of an allergic reaction or adverse reactions is virtually eliminated. You should expect the treatment area to be a tad red after the procedure as a few red blood cells are included in the plasma injection. A cold pack can be applied to the treatment site to reduce discomfort or minor swelling. We recommend you receive treatments every 4 – 6 weeks.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does PRP therapy cost?
Your cost for PRP therapy will depend on where you are getting it and whether it is being combined with other cosmetic procedures within your treatment plan. A member of our team will provide you with an estimated cost during your initial consultation at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness and discuss the payment methods we accept.
How long do results from PRP therapy last?
Improvements from PRP therapy can last for up to eight weeks. The longevity of the results will vary with each patient and will depend on the area being treated. Some of the benefits of PRP therapy is that it does not require surgery or a long recovery period and is easier to afford.
What are the risks and complications of PRP therapy?
Possible risks for PRP therapy when done alone are very minor and include only prolonged bruising and swelling. When you get PRP therapy with microneedling, potential risks may include mild scarring, pigment changes, and delayed healing. That’s why it’s important to have microneedling done by a skilled professional who has studied the process.
Will PRP help replenish volume?
A treatment of PRP therapy cannot restore volume in areas, like your lips and cheeks. Although PRP injections offer impressive results, rejuvenating your skin and boosting the production of collagen and elastin, it does not increase volume. If you want to contour certain areas on the face or body that have lost volume, you may be a better candidate for dermal fillers or fat transfer. Dr. Thaker can share his professional opinion on the matter during your private consultation.
Is PRP therapy painful?
Injections of PRP serum feel similar to a wrinkle filler or relaxer injection but with the additional step of extracting the plasma. Generally, most patients will feel a mild pinch or pressure during the injection. If you are worried about feeling pain, request local anesthesia before the injection is performed.
Using PRP therapy, your skin will be healthier and brighter than before and will produce a beautiful, glowing appearance. This procedure is perfect for men and women who prefer a natural method of skin or hair rejuvenation that yields stunning results.
